The Lyrics

The first parody I ever wrote! Dreadfully politically incorrect, but it was the '70's so I can be forgiven.
Her name was Ethel
She was a dancer
She'd belly dance to groovy sounds
Though she weighed 300 pounds
And she loved Tommy
Who was the bouncer
He'd bounce the drunks right out the door
As Ethel bounced around the floor
He'd watch with lov-ing eyes
Her bod's e-nor-mous size
Like the waves upon the ocean
It would fall and rise

At the Kitten, the nightclub Kitten
The only spot Ethel could fit in
At the Kitten, the nightclub Kitten
Folks take their chances when Big Ethel dances
At the Kitten....

They fell in love.

His name was Sammy
He laughed at Ethel
And from the table where he sat
He said "Good God! That broad is FAT!"
It got to Tommy
Who beat up Sammy
And as they'd pound with fists of rage
Ethel fell down from the stage
She started roll-ing and
She nearly squashed the band
There was a *SPLAT!* and a scream of terror
But where did she land?

At the Kitten, the nightclub Kitten
The only spot Ethel could fit in
At the Kitten, the nightclub Kitten
Folks take their chances when Big Ethel dances
At the Kitten....

She lost her love!

Her name is Ethel
She was a dancer
But that's 200 pounds ago
When she put on quite a show
And now she's skinny
She can hurt no one
She cries 'nuff tears to fill a pool
While she shines her belly jewel
She stop eat-TING so that
She took off all that fat
She lost her weight like she lost her Tommy
When she SQUASHED...HIM...FLAT...

At the Kitten, the nightclub Kitten
The only spot Ethel could fit in
At the Kitten, the nightclub Kitten
Folks take their chances when Big Ethel dances
At the Kitten....

Don't fall in love.............

Hey Bentley...for a first parody, this is excellent...you're pacing is as sharp as your wit, and there are lots of good lines here. Well done! 555, and keep writing!

This was fantastic work, Bentley. I'm impressed that you did not stoop to include filthy lyrics, as do so many sub-juvenile parodists here. The person who gave the 1's must be mortified because of his/her own humongous size.

Through the years I've been called on the carpet for this one by Manilow fans, feminists and the people of the whole Fat Acceptance movement (I, myself, support a bit of an averdupois) but if we're so uptight and constipated then why are we here? I appreciate the kind comments from y'all!
